President Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen, and convicted perjurer, testified before lawmakers on Capitol Hill depicting the president as a conman and racist.
Cohen testified before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform Wednesday slamming the president while saying he had no direct evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Cohen went on to suggest President Trump knew of the Wikileaks email scandal targeting former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during the campaign before the emails were released.
President Trump’s former attorney continued by saying the president instructed him to mislead others regarding money paid to porn star Stormy Daniels.
According to Cohen, President Trump payed the adult star and directed the payments but told Cohen to say he “wasn’t knowledgeable” about the money transfer.
He went on to suggest President Trump would not handle a transition of power well if he loses the 2020 election.
Cohen pleaded guilty to a series of charges back in August ranging from lying to Congress, violating campaign finance laws, and fraud.
The president’s former lawyer is set to begin his three-year prison sentence in May.
